the difference
between the past and future?
We can try but we
can’t change
the past

And the moment
can’t be any

This last statement looks to me to be a semiautomatic handgun. If you squint, it’s easier to see. I didn’t mean for it to happen. The wording created the shape. And I happened to notice it and thought it to be appropriate because the statement is like an invisible gun pointing at us constantly.


time (by an amateur)

Does the moment include everything because everything can’t be anywhere else. Both past and future are ideas held in the moment’s grip for there is nowhere else to be.

Does the nowness allow things to exist? Is time the head of the heap? Is it the same time throughout the universe? If matter did not exist, would time exist?

What is it like to slip from one moment to the next? Is time a moving target, and if anything, instead of jumping from one second to another as some timepieces do. Is it like the electric wall-clock’s second hand which moves what seems to be continuously? Maybe not?

Could time be smooth with no wrinkles anywhere to measure? Is time actually ageless and stationary and everywhere and matter moves through this universal size matrix of time and the movement causes normal things to change and age? Do universes get sucked into being by time?

Science says the faster one travels the slower one ages.

Since the earth and its life is traveling very fast through space, does this mean that a person who is 50 years old here on earth would be ,say, 50.0001 of our years old if he or she had lived on a slower moving planet?

Is there anything stationary in the universe? Does the statement “Everything is relative.” mean everything is in motion?

I’m not a regular scientist, but I do love it. I believe science is the best hope for saving all life on earth from us. I’m talking about the essence of science, the sincere search for truth and what it means.
